Abstract

Social, economic, and health care trends demonstrating the rapid growth and diversity of elderly minority and ethnic groups have long-term repercussions for social support service systems in the United States. Current public policies designed for a homogeneous elderly population must become more flexible and must recognize and accommodate the needs of an increasingly diverse American society.
